Foster to Adopt
Our Foster-to-Adopt program allows potential adopters to interact and bond with a cat in their home prior to making a lifelong commitment. Fostering-to-adopt is a great way to see a cat’s true personality, watch how they integrate into your household, and determine whether adoption is the best match for the cat and family.
How Does it Work?
Foster-to-Adopt applicants are approved through our normal adoption process and based on the specific needs of the cat. Once approved, you will bring home your new friend and have 30 days to determine whether they are a perfect fit for you and your family. During the 30-day foster-to-adopt period, you will be responsible for providing food and litter; however, Ten Lives will provide any oustanding vet care at a partner rescue veterinarian. Please note: Ten Lives will not cover care provided by a non-partner veterinarian. Please take this into consideration when submitting a foster-to-adopt application.
At the end of the 30 days, you can make the adoption official by signing an adoption agreement and paying the adoption fee or you can return the cat to the care of Ten Lives. If you wish to continue fostering until adoption, Ten Lives will list the cat for adoption on their website and social media pages!
Who is Eligible?
Ten Lives identifies specific cats in their program who are the perfect candidates for the foster-to-adopt program. These cats will be matched with foster-to-adopt applicants based on their specific needs and the needs of the potential adopter. Our goal is to make a lifelong match! Please note: Young kittens are not eligible for our foster-to-adopt program.
